And Q and A session
My wonderful little boy had a slight tongue tie that was clipped, but we both needed help reestablishing how he nursed. Jenifer coached me in helping him use his mouth properly and correcting my supply to meet his needs. Within a week we were both sleeping better through the night and he was more content during the day.
Jen is phenomenal. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking breastfeeding support in the QC area! She truly has a passion to support families through the breastfeeding journey!
Jen is the absolute best!! She is so caring and knowledgeable. She goes above and beyond to ensure your breastfeeding relationship/journey is successful for both mom and baby. I felt more confident and at ease after my consultation with her. Would highly recommend in a heartbeat. Thank you for everything, Jen!!
